One of the Twin Cities best party Dj’s for almost 20 years, Dj Dan Speak has come to be known for a smooth mixing style, and his heavy knowledge of music. He was first influenced by the classic Minneapolis sound of the late 80′s and early 90′s, then the Golden era of Hip Hop which eventually led him into the 5 elements, settling on deejaying. Easily flipping the script from the Old to the New school, he has spun clubs and events consistently in the Twin Cities from the mid 90′s up to today.
He can currently be heard Saturday night’s from 6-10pm on KMOJ 89.9 The People’s Station hosting The Throwback Throwdown with MC Smoke D. Now in it’s 8th year, The Throwback Throwdown is a 3 time nominee for Best Radio show at the annual Twin Cities Hip Hop Awards. It’s 4 hours of classic Hip Hop & R&B music, from late 80′s Boom Bap up to the mid-nineties Bad Boy reign with plenty thrown in between. Highlighting the show is The Classic Mixtape @ 8, a full hour of Dan on the one’s & two’s! Also a 3 time nominee for Best DJ at TCHHA, Dan continues to bring the noise on the party and the radio scene.
